Snak Attack

No, it's not a type-O....that is how the sign spells "snack". There are vending machines EVERYWHERE....in the airports, off base, on base....and we wanted to try one. We are collecting quite a lot of "change" and it seemed like a good way to use some of it up.

What an array of choices. We'd noted at the airport that liquor is sold this way. I couldn't read most the bottles. I could decipher some....we chose something safe...In honor of Bre and Krista and the Coke fetish....

As we walked away, congratulating ourselves on navigating this new fun, I realized that Y120 is a bit over $1.20. We'd just paid for a can of Coke.....hmmm....

There's a machine near the room that seems to have SOUP in it. I plan to try that today....Jared said he'd try it with me. The others think corn soup from a vending machine is nasty...but then they always have been picky eaters. ::Snort::

A small (and I mean small) glass of soda in Germany cost 3Euros.... which at the time was more than $4 and with no refills

Do they still sell cigarettes in vending machines? They did when I was there a decade ago, but I seem to remember that new laws were changing that...it really bothered me that they should be that easily accessible to kids.
I was always amazed at the number of vending machines and the variety of items available. I kept hoping to see a vending machine selling cars--after all, they have car parking towers in the cities where you drive your car in, exit, then the car is taken up in a elevator--and the next car is driven in. If you haven't seen them yet, keep your eyes open, they're really fascinating; the whole structure is a little over two cars wide...

Wish I was there for the soup from a machine! Sounds like a cool idea.

Sis:

Corn soup is pretty good. :):)

Wow, send Bre/Krists a can of coke so they can have the can. But they will be there for Christmas and they can get their own I guess. Interesting can.

How nice to have so many different things in the vending machines. What fun.

Paula - not sure about cigarettes. I know in Tokyo they've really cracked down on smoking in general with smoking booths/rooms set aside for smoking.
